A number of celebrations are being planned across the city on the night of December 31.

A 3D light show and a count-down gala will be held at the Bund area while temples across the city will keep their doors open for striking of the bell.

A music laser show is planned  at the waterside platform on the South Binjiang area in the Pudong New Area with 2,014 balloons to be set off at midnight.

With the Chinese Lunar New Year next month, road traffic will be severely tested. The roads will be jammed with vehicles on January 30 as the Chinese New Year Eve is not included in the list of national holidays this year, according to Bao Shaokang, deputy city mayor and director of municipal public security bureau.

The Spring Festival rush adds to the road traffic burden and winter weather makes them worse leading to accidents.
